Concealed Handguns in Arkansas
Arkansas lawmakers passed a law allowing the concealed carry of handguns in 2007. The law outlines the requirements to get a permit and authorizes the Arkansas State Police to issue them. Section 5-73-306 lists places where concealed carry is restricted, including police or sheriff’s station; Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department facility or grounds; detention facilities or prisons; courthouses or courtrooms; polling places; government meetings; any state office; any athletic event; businesses where beer or light wine is consumed on premises, except restaurants; airports; churches; parades; or, any place prohibited by federal law.
